The Onion is premiering the second new song from SUNDOWNER’s Neon Fiction. Head here to listen to “Cemetery West” and read about the impetus behind the lyrics from Chris McCaughan below:
I was born in Chicago. The kind of place that lives in your blood and bones. And I did grow up, like the song says, in a northside neighborhood just west of a cemetery. [Daniel] Burnham is buried there. So “Cemetery West” is a song of origins, of half-truths, of histories that live with us as we create new ones. It’s about an unalterable past and uncertain future, about choosing to find a way forward with the darkness on your heels. Maybe, more simply, it’s about a trigger that finally clicks over after so many years of your index finger poised against it.
